In a mutually beneficial business move, CBS games review website GameeSpot has partnered with game streaming service OnLive to bring streaming game demos to consumers who are looking to make smart purchases. The terms of the deal with allow OnLive to host stream demos of upcoming and recently released games on its website, which would be featured alongside product reviews and other content pertaining to the game.

For OnLive’s end of the deal, the streaming service will feature GameSpot game reviews and interviews alongside playable versions of the game.

Certainty, this is the sort of innovation that is always talked about but not often practiced. GameSpot’s traffic, as well as OnLive’s exposure, will likely benefit from the partnership.

When he’s not writing about, reviewing, or playing games, music, and occasionally writing well-paying profiles of businessman, Daniel thinks about what exactly he'll end u doing with his life post-graduation. Daniel plans on either going to graduate school for an MFA, or more realistically, getting a day job, which he hopes is somehow involved in the gaming, comic book, or film industries.
